Within the park lies Valentines Mansion and Gardens, a beautifully restored 300-year-old country house. Elsewhere, Hainault Forest Country Park offers 300 acres of countryside, play areas, farm and zoo.

Saddle up at Aldersbrook Riding School

Always wanted to take the reins? This equestrian centre Near Wanstead Flats offers lessons for both adults and children so you can learn as a family. And it'll help you get fit - health experts say an hour's horse riding is as beneficial as a jog or game of tennis. Younger members of the family can also take part in grooming competitions and riding to music.
